Aloo Matar Paneer (Simmered Potatoes with Peas and Paneer)
There is no easy substitute for paneer cheese. Paneer is a dense cheese with a subtle flavor and a unique texture. If it cannot be found, try to pick up a package of firm Mexican queso blanco. Otherwise, omit the cheese to make aloo matar, or potatoes and peas.
If green cardamom pods are not available, then add ½ teaspoon cardamom powder during the final cooking phase.
If kasoori methi (dried fenugreek leaves) cannot be found, then omit it entirely.
